Or does this happen to you too?
You are happily perusing blogs (at the moment without any harassment - which you know is short-lived) when all of a sudden a "warning" pops up telling you that you've got 6 trojan viruses, a million worms and that your computer is about TO DIE RIGHT NOW!
Of course, this totally freaks me out. Because this computer can't die! We are still bonding!! (although we are getting closer every day. I know I love it and I think it is beginning to love me back....at least until it pulls something like this....then I'm convinced it hates me and is trying to drive me mad.....)
So you click on the button that tells you it will save your whole world - if only you click on it.
Whereupon you are then transported to another site that tells you that "Yes, in fact your computer is DYING as we speak! BUT!! We can fix it if you just pay $50.00/yearly (oh and by the way, it's an automatic withdrawal from you account that you will promptly forget about and freak out about when it shows up next year) and download our super-fantastic application."
How these things even keep popping up, I'll never know. But I'm wise to them. Oh yes, I am. Because it happened again today. I immediately closed the window and ran my security software - which tells me, surprise, surprise . . . that there is nothing wrong with my computer.
Now if I could just get the guys to quit freaking out and hitting the button(s) whenever it happens to them........
